Annual Conference 2021

50 years

After a difficult and isolating year for many of us, we’re thrilled to offer the opportunity to join together, share research and ideas, and celebrate 50 years of BELMAS! Taking place online over two days on 2nd – 3rd July, the conference, entitled ‘50 Years of BELMAS: Celebrating the Past and Looking Forward’, will be the centrepiece of our 50th anniversary celebrations. The programme includes discussions with authors of their research covering leadership development, compassionate leadership, the impact of Covid-19 on educational leadership, the school curriculum, race and governance and other aspects of educational leadership.

All the papers included in the programme will be accessible on demand before, during and after the conference. Our keynotes will be delivered live by Dr Steve Courtney and Prof Andy Hargreaves.
